( A ) The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapradet)

( B ) STINT - The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education

The main objective of the Swedish Research Council is to support basic research that is of high quality in an international comparison, in all scientific fields. There are three scientific councils in the Swedish Research Council: one for humanities and the social sciences, one for medicine and one for the natural and engineering sciences. There is also a Committee for Educational Science. The Swedish Research Council is an agency under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Science.

The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education was established in August 1994. The mandate of the STINT Foundation is to support the internationalisation of Swedish research and higher education. The Foundation encourages participation in its programmes from a broad spectrum within the Swedish system for higher education and research.
